drosophila

Too good: this image represents the total view of modern biology (ca. 1989) including a model organism (Drosophila), cells (the photoreceptor), molecules (visual pigments; and the membrane protein rhodopsin in its native environment) and recombinant DNA technology (the expression vector). It was painted by Ruben Di Anda, a San Diego artist, based on a design by David Meyer.
